    Can I have sex with it? If it isn't a sex robot, I don't care.

    You'll care when their burgers taste just as good and cost half as much as the joint down the street.

    Also if all the low income people don't have jobs because robots have taken them. who's buying the burgers?

    I think it's just a matter of time, but all of the fight for $15 folks are making it happen sooner. If I were a robot manufacturer I would be lobbying my congressmen for huge minimum wage increases for all potentially automated labor.

    This is probably going to lead to a basic income provided by the government...

    Think they are trying it here in ontario in a few communities.

    Not much different than welfare tbh

    Well, if Trump implements his tariff plans the next to go are the working class white people who had so much faith in him.

    Yeah, I would not eat anything from a robot server unless it was a sexbot serving up the old fish stew.

    But I wonder when we will get the machines to turn the out of work into soup?

    They have to make these robots workers into android copies of famous celebrities. These celebs will then charge for use of their likeness. Until one day they too are replaced.

    Ghost in the Shell is becoming reality.

    I'd rather trust food coming from a chain restaurant then street food. You just can't trust the cleanliness of street food.

    Of course if you find a good one that's trustworthy then it's leaps and bounds better.

    Yeah the tax payer will pay, and society in general will be worse off.

    But hey at least the companies making these robots and the companies using these robots will make a sweet earn.
